Araceli G
Veterinary Assistant

Hi! My name is Araceli. I have lived in Moline my whole life, except for the four years I spent at Iowa State. There, I studied Animal Science and Spanish.

Hi! My name is Araceli. I have lived in Moline my whole life, except for the four years I spent at Iowa State. There, I studied Animal Science and Spanish.

Ever since I was little, I have had many little birds, like parakeets and canaries. Only recently, however, was I able to adopt my first dog, Catrín. His tuxedo-esque coat granted him the Spanish name for 'well-dressed man.'

I attended Iowa State in hopes of becoming a veterinarian but was soon introduced to the many fields that my Animal Science degree could direct me to. I worked in a research laboratory, was a microbiology teaching assistant, volunteered at shelters, shadowed at zoos, and worked at a vet hospital in Spain. All these experiences reinforced my love of science and helping animals and the people they are connected to. As a native Spanish speaker, I also studied Spanish to learn the language in a professional setting in hopes of providing representation in the veterinary field.

I am excited and eager to gain knowledge from the staff and clients at Blue Grass Veterinary Hospital while I continue my journey of learning and helping others.
